Holds are a bit different. I guess they're a bit like circuits, but are based on a fix point at height, related to a navaid. They normally look a little out of place doing circuits, as you don't see many things that size doing them

Well, we all had to do it (albeit on a better aircraft back then ).... then again on the Tucano, then again on the Hawk.....

And don't worry about forgetting your checks. I forgot all mine over Xmas as well. :rolleyes:

From a GR7 mate's perspective, it probably doesn't fly in the vertical enough and has too many seats. If you're in a GR4 you probably think it's crap at its job, flies too far away from the ground, and is crewed by a ton of scarf-wearing primadonnas. If you fly the GR3 you're probably too busy applying to Virgin to worry about it, or wondering if you'll get airborne on your next sortie to actually get around to evading them on affil If you're in a Hawk, you're probably religously defending it or insulting it despite very little idea of what it's like to your coursemates, or wishing it would hurry up and die so you get posted to Typhoon instead. If you're an F3 mate, you probably wish it was a little bit more servicable and people realised how good it is with ASRAAM and AMRAAM, and how good you look with your scarf anyway. And wondering what this SEAD stuff's all about, and trying to avoid being posted to 4FTS.
Nice, now having nearly all the view points
Now how do the Canberra people feel, something to do with evenly matched heating in the cockpit and nav pod?

They're too old to have noticed the F3.

Linton's very nice, but at least 2 -4 years away for someone in your shoes so I wouldn't worry about it too much yet!

Radios are easy. Don't learn things by rote, and just think about what you need to say.

My parents also pushed me for oxford - I went down there for the interview process (more for them, really) and found that it, too, is a reasonable night out - don't think my interviewers appreciated my alchey breath and jaded eyes though (should I have taken it more seriously?!)
I like manchester (though it's a bit far to the uas at woodvale), liverpool has good ratings from old uas chums (nearer woodvale), and leeds is a top night out (fairly near church fenton - you can slap andy for his smiley!). Don't know how any of these go in terms of medicine though.
Glad to see you got your priorities right

I'd spend 3yrs in Manchester if I went to St Andrew's, which I wouldn't mind really. Leeds is a posibility, but Liverpool's a definite no.

nikki, andy, I went to ELUAS, so I was based at leuchars. Nikki, I can tell you that St A's is a top place - I personally went to edinburgh, so I only ever visited, but the pubs are top, and dundee is an easy taxi ride away. I new some people who went to NUAS and found Durham good. My parents also pushed me for oxford - I went down there for the interview process (more for them, really) and found that it, too, is a reasonable night out - don't think my interviewers appreciated my alchey breath and jaded eyes though (should I have taken it more seriously?!)
I like manchester (though it's a bit far to the uas at woodvale), liverpool has good ratings from old uas chums (nearer woodvale), and leeds is a top night out (fairly near church fenton - you can slap andy for his smiley!). Don't know how any of these go in terms of medicine though.
Andy, I've had a few good nights courtesy of YUAS! Thanks to your predecessors! Do you still break into that old abandoned building (think it used to be the all ranks' club) during your town nights?!
You do know my local area well dont you! Are you from the Fife/lothian area or just come up here for Uni?

oh, been guilty of having a night out at the mardi in dundee then?
Im Speaking as a former abertay student, of course

The hospital placements would mean loads of travelling, I'm not too sure about the problem based learning approach to the course, and the uni facilities are only available during term time (not good if you're living in halls).

Plenty of trade for the hospitals though; perhaps a little too much

No, I only know the area from staying at leuchars for camps at UAS. And the odd overnight landaway!!

You can't go wrong with those as priorities

It may well be my insurance offer as it has a fairly decent reputation for medicine, although surprisingly a very high ratio of applicants to places. I'll know better when I've been to the open day

Not really. I have a little book called 'The insiders guide to medical school', which gives the low down on uni life at each Unfortunately, I don't have the same for RAF questions likely to come up at OASC!!
